Walt Disney Studios and Paramount Pictures have reached an Indiana Jones agreement, Deadline reported Friday. Disney now has marketing distribution rights to future films in the famous (and lucrative) franchise, while Paramount will retain distribution for the first four movies.
That means Disney is now clear to make a new Indiana Jones movie, although no such announcement has been made -- yet. Deadline calls such a thing "likely," and title star Harrison Ford said in October on the UK's The Graham Norton Show that he would do another Indiana Jones "in a New York minute." "I don't think there's any barrier to Indiana Jones being an old fart," the actor said. "It's OK. We've seen him in all stages of his life."
